This volume attests to the far-reaching influence of Kazhdan-Lusztig theory on several areas of mathematics by presenting a diverse set of research articles centered on this theme. Although there has been a great deal of work in Kazhdan-Lusztig theory, this book is perhaps the first to discuss all aspects of the theory and gives readers a flavor of the range of topics involved. The articles present recent work in Kazhdan-Lusztig theory, including representations of Kac-Moody Lie algebras, geometry of Schubert varieties, intersection cohomology of stratified spaces, and some new topics such as quantum groups.

Readership

Research mathematicians working in Lie theory, algebraic geometry, noncommutative algebra, topology, microlocal analysis, and quantum groups.
